    nano 6g broken headphone jack repair :(
    hi,

    i have a iPod nano 6g.
    2 weeks ago the headphone jack broke, so I got a replacement jack on amazon.
    After replacing the jack, the buttons work as well as everything else but the SOUND.
    It sounds fuzzy and if you listen carefully you hear a quiet melody in the background.

    What do you think could have gone wrong?

    I already replaced the isolation tape in the iPod.

    Could I have broken the new headphone jack while installing?

    im addicted to music so please help me

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Yosemite
    It sounds like a poorly shielded replacement jack or it's not grounded properly. Was the replacement jack an actual Apple part or a similar replacement? Also, you might wish to look at the take apart instructions for the Nano 6th Generation at iFixit: The free repair manual.
